Chicago (Ill.) Vocational junior dual threat quarterback prospect Isiah Williams (6-foot-1, 210 pounds) entered this past weekend with an impressive 19 scholarship offers. Even more impressive is that Williams has added three additional offers on Sunday night, bringing his total amount of scholarship offers to 22 this spring.
"I received offers last Friday from Kansas State and Minnesota," Williams said. "Tonight (Sunday) I received calls and added scholarship offers from Colorado, Central Michigan and New Mexico State."
Williams gave us his initial thoughts on his latest offers.
"They play in the Big 12 conference and I've followed K-State football for awhile now. They run basically the same type of offense that we run at CVS. I really like the Kansas State style of play and they have also been a very successful program over the years."
"Minnesota is in the Big Ten and that's always good from a football and an academic perspective. They play a West Coast style on offense and I'll need to do some research on Minnesota academically. I'm happy to get an offer from the Gophers no doubt."
New Mexico State?
"It's amazing to me when I get an offer from a school so far away from here like New Mexico State, it really does. I talked with the coaches on the phone and they seem like good guys. I'll definitely look into the Lobos to see what they have to offer."
"Central Michigan is in the MAC, and I know that they have been struggling lately but that they have a pretty new coaching staff. I've heard that they have a very good engineering school, and that's important to me and my family."
"Colorado is another Big 12 conference school that I've been watching over the last few years. I like the offense that Colorado runs, especially when they mix in some option and some zone reads. That offense looks to fit my skills pretty well. Colorado has also been a winning program and they have developed some really good quarterbacks over the years. Academically Colorado also has a solid reputation."
Williams is doing his best to keep this latest surge of recruiting interest and offers in perspective.
"So far it's just been an amazing ride for me and my family. I just want to try and keep a level head and to always stay humble. It's great that so many schools feel that I can play."
Williams also has his family working overtime lately in helping him sort out schools.
"My family has been great so far, and they have really been helping me with researching schools and just helping me keep everything organized. They have definitely been working hard for me lately."
Isiah Williams now has offers from Kansas State, Minnesota, Central Michigan, New Mexico State, Colorado, Iowa State, North Carolina, Wisconsin, U Conn, Oregon, Ohio State, Boston College, Akron, Ball State, Northern Illinois, Illinois, Purdue, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Iowa, Kansas and Indiana.
